Is V3890 Sgr a little brighter than usual?
Is recurrent nova V3890 Sgr a little brighter than usual? I imaged the field tonight and rather than the usual fainter-than, I could see the star. Here's a link to the image (stack of 4 subs) with annotations.
My data is too poor at these magnitudes to make anything more than a guess but it appears to be around mag 14 in the green channel, give-or-take. In the database the last positive obs was 14.64 on 19 Oct 2013 (also brightest obs for the year), and the last visual fainter-than was <14.0 on 26 Oct. One for the south really but maybe it's worth having a look at.
